    #9 thank you @Jennifer 🐝 Schultz. When I created this I did not put the EQ into it like you and @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD have done. Now that I have done a little of @Aurorasa Sima's training I am understanding what the two of you are talking about. This will play a factor in my future choices.

    I signed up for Twitter and haven't done anything there yet, @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD but I would be happy to help. I suggest buying the image use right and I can format it for you. I spend $1 on those I do not originate from scratch. #12

    #9 Absolutely - the fact that the shadows and silhouettes are generic makes this message multiethnic, gender-nonspecific, and international. A key point for the universal message and @Ben Pinto, it makes me want you to make a few images/quotes for my Twitter messages! Excellent image! Just Outstanding!

    Absolutely @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD - I looked at the vision also as you never know when someone needs you and quite frankly since the person is covered, it could very well be anyone, including ourselves. #6

    #4 Mark Anthony, thank you. Non-profits with shady types of collection practices do take advantage of good people, especially in Florida due to the high number of seniors.

    #3 We need more 'Positivity' right? I love the image and how the man appears to be kneeling down. Such a concept of servitude, while prevalent in the good medical community, espouses all public health workers and attitude towards helping the general public. One note, @Ben Pinto - this hits the mark for ethnicity and gender! Universal image that captures the mind. Thanks!

    Complete sense Ben! I've heard those that say things such as " People can take advantage of your goodwill", in a negative way, however, I believe, even if that were the case the benefits are felt personally! Thanks Ben

    @Deb 🐝 Helfrich: "My dad was comfortable being lost in the crowd and was equally at ease in charting his own narrative. He soothed my world with his work ethic. He made me believe miracles are possible with dint of a warm smile." I miss my Dad now. And love how your children are brought in at the end of the story, to let Grandpa live on. So so touching!

    What a beautiful tribute to your dad @Karthik Rajan. I'm guessing after reading this and other articles you've written, you share many of your dad's attributes. Your daughter is lucky, she will grow up having high standards because she has such a great role model, her father! I can't imagine how much you do miss your dad, memories stir up so many emotions. Thank you for sharing!

    I've seen this work in a similar environment, Matt. It's called a bar, and we don't care a smidge about race, creed, color or political affiliations. We share our lives, our concerns, our hopes and fears, all of which has a freeing effect, consummated by each arguing over who should pick up the bill. Just kidding. It's been so long since I've been in a bar, but I'd like to think we built the path for bonding in the boardroom. Men do get it, even if women think we're trogs.

    "From now on, when I hold business meetings (even if there are only men in the room), I am going to insist we begin by sharing something personal or interesting about ourselves. It really does build better business – and I will admit it, it feels good." Interesting idea. Worth a try to see what the effects may be. Thanks for sharing this @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood.

    Interesting insight. @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood. In my advertising agency career I was in a lot of meeting like the one you described (a while ago now) and things never went like that. You tended to find out of about what people were like by their interests, sports, boating, shooting, golf etc. People seldom got personal and in hindsight, I think a lot of those meeting might have gone better, or at least more comfortably, if they had been like the one you just described. It's funny though because whenever I met with a creative director in a job interview situation, the conversation was almost 100% personal. Guess creative people are just nosier.

    Love that gentleman from the investment firm!! He is a beBee Bee, and probably by now he already knows it... ;) Great experience @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood, thanks so much for sharing it, so you are not the only one who has learned how to hold your next business meeting. Wish you the best!!! And kudos to you about your family story. All my love!

    #13 After reading through the comments, yours is exactly where I started, too, @Mark Tillman Davis. You bring up excellent points that apply to a huge population of men, deserving of validation of course! I'm not a man, but I've been the only woman in a Conference Room full of male doctors thousands of times....and some of my best friends have always been men. Back in the day, I totally 'get' that a "man was a man" concept. But...today, the child isn't there just to be seen and not heard...parenting is not "Just do what I said." "BeCauSe I SaiD sO!" kinda thing. I'm raising my third generation of kids (no grandkids, humph!) so I've had my finger on the pulse. I think men should be men, and be the head of the family ~ testosterone wins out! Without going too extreme on what is presented, I'm thinking it may be better to look at this interaction more as 'mentoring' or 'parenting.' Because @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood is a single Dad. I baked my Dad Mother's Day cakes, to honor him as both a mother and father. So perhaps @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood, you are using that skill set here, not the 'crying mascara' 'drama' or talk of 'minutia' or gossip or blabber. Useful stuff. I'm thinking that is the angle. Matt? Being a single Dad has to matter.

    I was a bit hindered at a discussion of male bonding instinctually (after working with primarily surgeons for eons and ions)...but here is my take, which took a full-on turn: you nurture your children (honors for being a single parent~so was my Dad); the first man nurtured you; then everyone nurtured one another & that's what women do, by nature. So I'm thinking that women:emotion is really women:nurture. And are we parenting/mentoring/teaching leaders to be leaders during these business meetings? I'd say, "Yes." So I'm Sharing to 'Parenting Hives." And look what you've done! Taught men about meetings and also about parenting and having families! You did it. You do it. Congrats!

    So you all developed an affinity for one another? By taking an interest in your potential business partners as human beings first? This investment firm sounds like a really good match for beBee!

    Excellent article @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood. Thanks for tagging me. You wrote, "Everyone took turns sharing about themselves. The whole dynamic in the room changed. It was one of those moments you will remember long after the business part is forgotten." Helps to break the ice and really get to know others on another level.

    All savvy employers should know by now that providing equal opportunities to people simply makes good business sense in the 21st century economy. However, it appears that some CEOs and executive leaders haven't gotten the message.

    I have spent my entire adult life associated with men of "traditional" masculinity. These men would view the author's concept of "enlightened masculinity" as what we refer to as the feminization of men. We "Neanderthals" don't spend much time talking to each other about our feelings or sharing. We talk smack. We cuss. We use the "f" word like a comma. We don't give a thought to each others race or ethinicity or cultural background. It doesn't matter. What we have shared are difficult times in harsh environments. Life and death stuff. I would trust these men with my life, my wallet and my family.
    My father and grandfathers weren't big "sharers" either. They taught me my role as a man. Do the right thing in the right way for the reasons because that's what men do...and when you don't, be prepared for consequences. I idolize them and the men of their generations. Bonding between men happens as result of genuine experiences; not from an announcement that "at this point in the meeting, we're gonna' share."
